This exhibition was born to recover our traditions and our culture in order to make the most of our historic centre, one of the larger of Alta Irpinia, and was promoted in 2001 by local members of DS, the one of the party from the Left.

This initiative became a reality thanks to an artists’ group from Novara (a city from the North) that had the new-brand idea to adopt the historical centre of our town. An association called “Nicura” followed the purpose and so the promoters and the most part of the artists were joined to reach the goal.

The works were donated to DS Party, and by them handed over to the city; a municipal committee decided their placing on a route that crosses all the centre.

Finally the positive collaboration among the association, the municipal administration and the regional superintendence department has took at the presentation of the “Contemporary Art Route” during the Fifth Week of Culture, organized by Ministry of Culture between 5-11 of May, 2003.
